— A bumper car caught fire on Monday at Carowinds in Charlotte. A man posted video of the fire on Facebook, which occurred around noon on the park's "Dodg-em" bumper car ride.

Officials said the passenger had gotten out of the car before the fire started, so no one was hurt. The ride worker used a fire extinguisher to reduce the fire.

Carowinds released a statement saying the ride has been inspected and tested and has reopened.
